Self-care is alive and well this summer while I’m off. It’s crazy how creative and motivated I am with this time off. I can feel the urge to get back into work and care mode bubbling, but I am trying to ward it off. I will either have some new additions to Etsy, maybe a flea market, or a surplus of Christmas gifts, but either way I’ve got a ton of ideas and mojo and it feels great! I’ve done some crocheted washcloths, keychains, and another scarf (with another in queue)!

This weekend was like Christmas. For reals.
I had gone to B&N last week with my main craft-nerd lady, and we were distraught by the poor magazine selection. Crafty magazines are my all-time guilty pleasure…the more imported and ridiculously expensive the better, as you’ll probably learn in the next few weeks when the new edition of US$20 Flow comes out. Don’t judge me. Anyways, there wasn’t a whole lot of selection, and it made me very saddy-face.
But there was insane redemption this Saturday, when I happened to waltz back in, to find the bestestestest edition of Molly Makes with the cutestestest mini loom!
I mean, just look at it- and look at the small loom I may have acquired from Amazon! Again with the judging??!?! BACK OFF.
It totally reminds me of one of my best happy places in Manteo, NC called Endless Possibilities. It is this awesome weaving shop that uses all recycled materials, whose proceeds fund a domestic abuse hotline. I’m serious, it’s that storybook. Here is my shiny face with Jen (Hi Jen!) on a day trip last year.
Some good Weekend Therapy extending through the week…aaaaahhhhh, feels good…
